    of course it would work for 10 speed, or 9, or sram 11, or 8, or 5, 6, 4, 3, or 2, for that matter. I'm keen to try it. Mainly cause i like a straight block, average 7% jumps. Now, to have that with...

    I, too, carry a quick link and a length of new chain. 5 links, actually. Or 2.5, depending on how you count them.

    I use an old patch kit box to carry chain and connector, 2 presta valve adapters,...

    the op used the word "cassette" when he actually meant "freehub body". Someone else called it a cassette body. Without clearly defined terms, we get mass confusion. Manufacturers do sometimes refer...

    Yes. You read it correctly. I was wrong. It's pricey, too. I'd be scared to gear it lower.

    it's a mess. I'm glad you didn't have to pay court costs. I don't know if it's a state thing in TN, or if we just lived in a money-hungry jurisdiction.

    Fines +jail time+bail/bond money +court costs amd attorneys fees/public defender fees if you fight it. Here, you have to pay for a public defender if you want one.

    Zero amount of redundancy on the two big rings. That's the point. The steps are about 7 %, closer in the middle, but still unique. The small ring is meant to overlap the middle some, so you don't...

    Bud, i believe i read that thread. Looks cool. No redundancy in the two big rings. My thinking is similar to yours, where you didn't need the big ring, so you half-stepped it. It really does make...

    hahaha. I hear you. My thinking was to keep the rings close in size to promote better shifting, but i just swapped the granny ring on my road bike from 30 to 26, and it shifts acceptably. It'll take...

    In my experience, a shorter chain will shift more reliably. I, too, run triples and a long chain. You may have success shortening your chain a little, if there's room. I don't like the big/big...

    im with you. A little younger, but probably in worse shape. I could throw a 26 on there and still have the half step, of course. And still be in range of an sgs derailleur.
